In common practices finish is a measure of the average roughness Ra as determined with a surface profilometer. Contemporary metrology includes a large number other parameters that are statistically derived to describe peaks, valleys, lay, bearing area, etc. of the surface profile. For detail discussion see Surfaces and Their Measurement. AES also offers other resources on metrology.

The surface characteristics of a paper. Finishes may be created on-machine or off-machine. On-machine finishing can be done two ways: for a smooth or vellum finish, pressure is imparted on the sheet with a finishing "stack." Laid of felt finishes are made with a marking roll, which actually presses the pattern into the paper while it's still wet. Off-machine finishes are called embosses. This is a separate step that presses the paper between a steel pattern roll and either a hard cotton backing roll (to create the finish on both sides), or a plastic roll (for smoothness on one side). Several generic terms describe the various finishes of uncoated paper, such as vellum, smooth, and laid. Individual paper manufacturers may not use these terms consistently; instead using unique finishes or unique names for common finishes.
